City recognizes 59 Remarkable Recyclers
October 21, 2013 -
It's Waste Reduction Week and the City is celebrating by recognizing 59 Kingston households with Blue and Grey Boxes bearing the "Remarkable Recycler" insignia.
"Congratulations to our Remarkable Recyclers, our unsung waste reduction heroes. We honour their tremendous diligence and consistent effort. They know that correctly sorting recycling and organic waste from pure garbage means we reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfill – and that's our goal," says Derek Ochej, Public Education Coordinator for Solid Waste.
Remarkable Recycler Deborah Tindal won the random draw for a Kobo e-reader.
Participating households had their curbside collectibles audited for sorting accuracy the collection weeks of September 30 or October 7. Those who sorted their waste correctly and set out one bag of garbage have now received their "Remarkable Recycler" Blue and Grey Boxes. Qualified householders had their names submitted into the random draw.
Look for the Remarkable Recycler recognition campaign to run again in April 2014.
